Renaissance texts, both in Spain and in Europe more generally, were deeply aware of their own relatedness. This panel seeks to explore what can be recuperated by granting these intertextual links a larger place in our account of literature in the Spanish Golden Age. Translations, adaptations, reprints, and sequels, among other things, all offer new insights into the way texts were read and understood. Studies of intersemiotic connections are also welcome. Please send 300 word abstracts by September 30, 2012, to Gregory Baum at
